The Pen & Muse
“Kafe Castro” by Christina Fifield-Winn is a short story written from the viewpoint of an American dental patient who elects to have some procedures done while working in Norway. Under the heavy sedation of Novocain (or the Norweigan much more powerful equivalent) the reader witnesses her flashbacks to sexy office scenes and her panic at not being able to move certain body parts. Visits to the dentist are often filled with trepidation, sometimes fear, and more frequently a crippling panic of the ...more

I felt as though I was experiencing one of my nocturnal, pre-sleep, mental races when one thought explodes into thousands within a fraction of a second. Cristina took me for a ride that left me spinning as she swiftly shifted from image to image, handling present and past in a perfect weave. If I had a complaint, it'd be that it ended so soon. For a short story, KAFE CASTRO has quite a memorable voice that showed me it is possible to committ those mental races to the page, but I'll gladly leave ...more

Hilarity ensues when an American woman, high on drugs (Novocaine), reflects on her life in a foreign land (Denmark), after she finds herself half-naked in the backyard of a strange man (Pervy Robe Guy).

It’s frantic. It’s zany. It’s like watching a movie filmed entirely with a shaky camera. Lots of awkward situations, some a little far-fetched, but entertaining nonetheless. Short story but plenty of laughs.

While at the dentist office, this young woman begins to reflect on her life so far. She relives every moment since she followed Lars to Europe, a monumentally bad decision. Her thoughts start because she can't move her ride side at all. She's convinced she'll be this way for life. She doesn't stop to think she's simply been given too much Novocain.

This series is designed to be read during those times you have 10-15 minutes to kill. They are terrific reads, but be ready to enter the minds of so

Kafe Castro is a fun read. It's that simple. Crafting this story around the silliness one feels in the dentist chair--the drool, the drugs, the awkward weakness of having your feet off the floor and your head tilted back and your mouth propped open while they play music for you comes across. It's like being there. The misty, disjointed thoughts you have while you wait and suffer are peppered through this story. It is a wild and crazy ride, and if you don't laugh out loud when reading it, you mus ...more

*** Perfect for a short break ***

Kafé Castro is a fun romp through a woman's head as she's under the influence of laughing gas at the dentist's office.

For a short story, the author's style is both snappy and tight, and that works well for the multiple moving scenes of this book.

The only down side was prose that read a bit too frenetic at times. Thankfully, the author was able to counterpoint this with imaginative and heady prose.

This is a quick and enjoyable read for when you have a coffee break
